Global Studies

A Global Studies education focuses on key issues in today's globalized world. Global Studies students are not simply given the tools to understand the processes of globalization and their consequences, they are also encouraged and empowered to intervene in those processes and shape their world. In global studies, students have faculty from interdisciplinary backgrounds who are training the next generation of global leaders in education, business, government, and social justice work.
